Latvia’s national selection show Supernova 2016 came to an end after two heats, one semi-final and weeks of fun-filled entertainment from the Riga Beaver. In the end, Justs just emerged victorious with his entry “Heartbeat” and became Latvia’s second Eurovision representative in the Supernova era.
Justs – “Heartbeat”
Watch our interview with Justs
Tonight’s four finalists — Catalepsia, Justs, Marta Ritova and MyRadiantU — performed their entries, then it was up to the televoters and international online viewers to decide the winner. After an incredibly tight voting period, Justs took an early lead. Catalepsia quickly started to catch up though, getting as close as 3% behind. At the final reveal though, Justs came out on top to become Latvia’s Eurovision 2016 representative in Stockholm.

During the show, we also saw Aminata — who penned “Heartbeat”, let us not forget — perform her new single “Fighter”. It was a good night all round for Justs, as he also won a 2000 Euro prize for achieving the most social media likes. Spending money for Stockholm, y’all!
